Beautiful in the spring when the wild flowers are in bloom!

"Completed" this hike about two weeks ago.... what a poor choice in hikes to do. Enjoyed the drive up from Davis.... but too hot, too dry, too unmarked. Wait until early spring is my suggestion, even then not a great hike. Also broke my pup and had to carry her as there were tons of stickers, foxtail type weeds.

Don't go here this time of season, not worth it.

Worth it for the view of the falls and the aviary!

Trails not very well marked. Bring plenty of water.

5/27/2017 Hike
Came here 5/27/17 and got there at 6 am, we had the whole place to ourselves and didnt see anyone until our way back around 930, the parking lot was half filled then. Bring water, snacks, hat, and sunglasses - no shade thru and thru. The path was rocky in some spots but was easy enough to spot even if there were no signs, but it got confusing when we got to the areas where it's fenced up. Since the path continued thru the fences we came across, we continued forward. When you get to Ravine Falls, you will see a fence with no trespassing notices. Someone scribbled "Yes this is the trail" with an arrow pointing past the fence. We didnt see any other route so we went around that fence and followed the path on the left (the private property is on the right). That fence left only less than a foot to step on so be careful going around it. There were a million grasshoppers and ants on the path, kinda cool. The Ravine Falls is just a trickle at this point and the Phantom Falls is just a bit more than that, and on the way back, we tried to find the loop as the map shows here on All Trails but it was too overgrown and couldnt find it. Overall, it was still a good little hike. This hike is rated moderate probably due to the small uphill/downhill/rocky path but I found it's actually an easy one and not for folks looking for a challenge. Wish there was a way to get down the ravine and go under the falls.

nice little hike. went mid week early morning and it was nice. pretty much had the trail to ourselves. difficult to navigate at times, but good cell coverage for the entire route. more of an in and out trail as the loop listed on the main map didn't seem to exist unless you are ok with walking through fields of foxtails. waterfall was very low flow, and not as the pictures depicted at this time but still beautiful, couldn't find how to get down to the bottom of the ravine to see the base of it. bring water and a hat as there is little to no shade.

Really pretty hike even though we didn't find phantom falls (which is why I downloaded this app) We stayed left and guessed wrong at a couple unmarked forks and ended up in cow pastures. Saw a nice gopher snake sunning himself on the trail and a mamma doe with her baby grazing in the meadow. Spectacular old oak trees and vine strewn pathways. We'll go again earlier next year to catch the wildflower bloom, vernal pools and pumping falls. And now that I know how to get to phantom falls I hate to wait that long.

Family friendly hike with a pretty view at the end ;)
